Lower the cost of your Spring Cleaning by using baking soda! A box of baking soda is inexpensive, can be used to clean many things, and does not have a strong smell (like other cleaners do). Here are some things you can clean – or deodorize – with baking soda.

One way to remove mildew from your bathroom is to use a damp sponge and some baking soda. It will take some effort, but it is possible to scrub away mildew from your tub, tiles, sink, shower, and shower curtain with baking soda. You may want to have multiple sponges on hand, depending on how much mildew is in your bathroom.

Got a greasy or grimy microwave? Baking soda can make it cleaner! Sprinkle some baking soda on the inside, and outside, of your microwave. Wipe away all the dried food residue and whatever smells are lingering with a damp sponge or microfiber cloth. For best results, unplug the microwave before cleaning. Don’t forget to wipe off the handle and outside of the microwave!

Baking soda can be used to remove orders. This is why people put a slightly open box of baking soda in their refrigerators. Baking soda can also be used to remove musty smells from closets. Put an open box of baking soda on a closet shelf and leave it there. You can also fill an old sock with baking soda and put it in a drawer to remove odor.

When the weather starts to warm up and get nice again, you might want to bring your lawn furniture out of storage. Baking soda can help you clean it up before use. Mix a half-cup of baking soda with 1 quart of warm water. Get a sponge or a cloth, dip it into the mixture, and wipe down your lawn furniture. When the dirt is gone, rinse off the lawn furniture and let it dry.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
